Attention ALL Properties Connected to Private Sewer in Underhill!
All properties that connect to this private foul water sewer in Underhill need to be aware that South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) maintains the sewerage treatment plant but not the sewers. The sewers that feed into the plant remain the responsibility of the residents using it.
What this means is that in the event of becoming aware of any sewer blockage, then the SODC Environmental Health Officer will serve notice under the public health act on everyone upstream of the blockage requiring that they get together to arrange to clear the blockage within 48 hours.
Reality is that to organise such a clearance is unlikely. So if it's not cleared by the expiration of the deadline then SODC will arrange for a private contractor to clear it and then divide the cost between the houses upstream of the blockage and follow up to recover such costs from the upstream properties.

The 135 service has ceased so the village is served by the Comet service (two days a week) and the free Tesco bus. For the latest timetable see Moulsford News or bus stops in the village.

Thames Valley Crimestoppers
Some people who have information about crime don't want to speak to he police and certainly don't want anyone to know who they are. So how do they pass on what they know? The answer is to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Because the callers are anonymous, ther is no way of knowing who they are. The calls are not traced or recorded and don't show up on phone bills unless made from mobile phones.
Crimestoppers removes any fear of reprisal, retribution or revenge. The critical point is that the information does get through and certainly makes a difference. This is because the police cannot solv crime on their own but need help from everyone. Sometimes the police know who the criminals are, but dn't have enough evidence to make an arrest. When information - often like the final piece in a jigsaw - is given through Crimestoppers, the criminals are caught.
The Freephone number 0800 555 111 should only be used to give information about people involved in crime or who may be planning a crime. The emergency 999 number should always be used if, for example, a crime is actually being committed. If anyone is not bothered about anonymity, then they can call the general police enquiry number: 0845 850 5505.
If you would like to know how to get involved with Crimestoppers, please contact:
Thames Valley Crimestoppers, PO Box 4818, Earley, Berkshire. RG10 0FT
or email: TVCS@ehotspot.co.uk
Please help to keep all our public places clean by cleaning up after your pets! Special bins are provided for the disposal of dog mess at various locations on the village recreation ground and near the Cranford hockey pitch.
